December 2009

Phew, time for the very last blog post in this summary of 2009. It’s been boring, probably even more boring for you. Next year I’ll do it in another format. Promise.

Life in General:

December was a month I don’t want to experience again. Some days I was frustrated and angry, some days I was sad, some days I was happy but I don’t remember those days…

Friends:

I celebrated minichristmas at Pernilla’s, Stefan’s and Alice’s house together with Anna, Andreas and Tobias. We ate good food (not Christmas food) and had a nice evening together. One week later I celebrated New Years Eve in the same house with the same people, plus Jenny. A nice evening as always with my friends in Linköping.

Family:

The 28th of December was the last time I met my grandfather Bernth on this earth. He slept while I was there but when I was about to leave and realised that I had forgot to say good bye I ran back to his bed, grabbed his hand and said “Good bye grandpa”.

My family tried to celebrate Christmas as we always do, but it wasn’t like any other year. After spending the whole day by my grandfathers bed we went home in the evening. But we were all thinking of the only one who weren’t with us when we ate the Christmas food and handed out the gifts. It was all done in about two hours.

Personal:

I wrote a blog post about how I felt about living a journalist life.

LiA:

Interviews, interviews, interviews.. and a lot of writing in vain.

Work:

I worked at Lagos Mode one day in December, or not even one days, I think I worked for about three hours. It was the first day on the sale, the 26th of December.

Social Media:

I won the autumn competition at skyltat.se and got a Nokia 5800 Xpress Music which my brother is the happy owner of today.

I had a down period in this blog and just published five blog posts. I was probably out of words…

Trips:

I made one weekend-trip to Östergötland in the beginning of the month but the day before Christmas Eve I went there and stayed for the rest of the month.

Technology:

I bought my lovely iPhone 3GS 32 GB. Probably the best thing I have ever bought.

Film:

I actually got 6 movies from Marcus and CC for Christmas. The Lord of the rings trilogy and the Beck 21-24 box.

I forgot my camera at home when I went to Östergötland for Christmas and I hate myself for that. No photo of the month. I suck.

November 2009

Life in General:

November was a very hectic month. And as it wasn’t enough I got myself another internship company. But all in all I am satisfied with what November gave me.

Friends:

Sanna, Lorraine, Jenny and I gathered up in Jennys kitchen for some brainstorming about the spring which will include individual final projects for school, a collective blog and an event in may. We had lots of fun and got some really good ideas.

During a visit in Norrköping I enjoyed an evening at Världens Bar together with Pernilla, Stefan, Alice and Anna. And when Stefan visited Stockholm I had dinner with him.

In the end of the month, the first weekend in advent started with a 60’s party at Sanna’s place. The day after I took the train to Gnesta to spend the rest of the weekend at Josefin‘s and Björn‘s house for some pre-christmas-celebration or something. Nice people, nice food, nice mulled wine and nice Christmas songs.

Family:

My aunt Marianne and cousin Anna visited me again for another weekend with Millennium and gospel. We watched Flickan som lekte med elden at the cinema and went to a Kirk Franklin concert in Ericsson Globe.

I also visited my family i Norrköping for a weekend.

LiA:

In the middle of November I lost control over my internship when I worked faster than expected at Tredje Statsmakten. I solved the problem by doing the rest of the internship at Habit 50% of the time while I stayed at Tredje Statsmakten 50% of the time.

Work:

Together with my co-worker Birgitta I was at the Habit Fashion Awards in the Blue Hall in Stockholm City Hall where she was nominated as the best seller in Sweden. To bad she didn’t win but in my eyes she is the best anyway. We had a wonderful evening at the awards and atleast Birgitta will remember that for the rest of her life. I borrowed Lorraine’s camera for this evening and I am very grateful for that, but afterwards I regretted that I didn’t bring my own camera, ’cause then I would’ve had better photos now.

Social Media:

I participated in the Autumn competition at skyltat.se which I later won, I also blogged about my classmates on Twitter and ended up on Niclas Strandh‘s first list of blogging tweeps.

In the end of the month when the fashion store Urban Outfitters terminated all its staff the owner of their swedish domain name used social media in a try to help the employees. I wrote a pretty long blog post about that aswell.

Trips:

The trips I made during the month weren’t very far, one to Norrköping and one to Bondhälla (outside Gnesta).

Film:

As I wrote above I watched Flickan som lekte med elden in November. The film was good, but it shone though that it was made for TV and not for cinema.

Music:

I created a Christmas list on Spotify and let my tweeps add their favourite to it. Here is the result.

It seems like I didn’t take any pictures with my beloved camera during November. Therefore, I have no picture of the month in this post. Unbelievable.

Thank you

It’s been some time since my last post. There are more than one reason for that but a lot of things have happened during the past weeks. For example I have bought an iPhone. I have had it for a week today and I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever bought. I have also had my last days at Tredje Statsmakten and Mentor. My last internship week were very hectic but I enjoyed my time anyway.

The Christmas holiday has been hard times for my family. That’s why I haven’t written until now. We haven’t prioritized things like blogs or Christmas gifts this year. I haven’t even sent as many Christmas greetings as I would’ve wanted to. Not even in my blog. At least I feel that I should’ve wished my blog readers a merry Christmas. I am sorry for that.

But as the topic says I would now like to thank you. Thank you all for the Christmas greetings, the Christmas gifts and the kind words. Thanks for all the warm greetings to the family. Thanks to all my tweeps for caring even though you don’t know my family. I love you all.

How does Christmas sound to you?

Soon it is Christmas time and as soon as it is Advent, I use to start making my list of Christmas songs to listen to. In old times it used to be in winamp, now it’s in Spotify. This year I have started one week earlier, because I want a crowd sourced Christmas playlist. I want you to add your favourite Christmas songs to the playlist and hopefully both you and me will discover some new favourites.

I only have two rules for this crowd sourcing which I hope you will follow.

  1. Do not delete tracks just because you don’t like them.
  2. Do not add any songs by Kikki Danielsson.

Ok?
Good.
